Valve has today announced a new feature for both SteamOS and Steam Big Picture Mode, called Steam Music, it will allow gamers to listen to their locally stored music collection while plating a game. From the new feature, users can view and play entire albums, or a singular track, and manage a playlist queue.
Once the user is in a game, the player will be accessible via the Steam overlay or by pressing the Guide button on their Steam Machines controller, from where they can do more or less the same stuff as we previously mentioned.
“With this beta, we’re getting started with what we believe to be the most fundamental set of features to offer a great music listening experience within Steam,” Valve wrote on its community website. “As always, our next steps for the feature will be influenced by your beta feedback, so please share your feature requests, thoughts, and experiences in the music discussions.”
At the moment Steam Music is only available as a beta for SteamOS and Steam Big Picture Mode, with participants invited in waves,however Valve have said that a desktop version of Steam Music will also launch soon.
